Giving Options

The Annual Fund is an opportunity for donors to contribute to our work all year long. Funds generated through this giving option are unrestricted and supplement a variety of program and operational needs.

This is the most flexible of all contribution methods and allows JFS to allocate funds raised to areas that need it most. Give a tax-deductible gift today!

Most refugees, asylees, and humanitarian parolees arrive to the United States with very little. While we do our best to help with housing and in-kind donations, financial support is always needed to assist with food, healthcare products, public transportation, school supplies, and so much more.

If you would like to help build a reserve that we can distribute from time to time to all types of families from afar, please contribute to our Family Support Fund.

JFS also gladly accepts donations made by check (including gifts from donor-advised funds or retirement accounts).
Checks payable to Jewish Family Services of WNY can be mailed to:
